Mark Eirdr 9II/3 — mun ‘will’

Bróðir gekk í Bôr út síðan
— bragningr vildi guðdóm magna —
(hylli guðs mun hlífa stilli)
hǫfuðskjǫldunga fimm (at gjǫldum).

Bróðir fimm hǫfuðskjǫldunga gekk síðan út í Bôr; bragningr vildi magna guðdóm; hylli guðs mun at gjǫldum hlífa stilli.

The brother of five principal kings [= Eiríkr] then walked out to Bari; the ruler wanted to strengthen God’s dominion; the grace of God will in return protect the prince.
